Lamar University announces the Center for Advances in Port Management.

The Department of Industrial Engineering and the College of Business at Lamar University have teamed with waterfront industry professionals to o­ffer courses in port management that will lead to a Masters of Engineering Management specializing in port management. The Center will also begin offering certifications related to the port/terminal enterprise. The constant progress and development of global markets, new technologies, and political and environmental pressures motivate port/terminal managers to be prepared for ever-present challenges. A balanced, waterfront industry-based curriculum allows graduates of the Port Management Program at LU to develop and fine-tune the much-needed bridge between engineering, business, transportation, logistics, design, operations management and cost efficiency.  Learn more.
